The Guys respond to NY Times writer Frank Bruni's conjecture as to how the economy is causing restaurants to be understaffed in the first segment of this show. Mark and Francis have their own ideas about how the economy is affecting service.
Mark Krulansky, award winning author, joins the Guys later and discusses his new book "The Food of a Younger Land: A Portrait of American Food-Before the National Highway System, Before Chain Restaurants, and Before Frozen Food, When the Nation's Food was Seasonal, Regional, and Traditional-from the Lost WPA Files." Using Depression Era Work Progress Administration research and reviews, Kurlansky is able to illustrate the American food traditions of the 1930's and 40's. He explains his research for this retrospect and even offers the Guys some recipes.
